A royal bridge
Victoria Bridge in Brisbane was named after Queen Victoria, who ascended to the British throne on 20 June 1837.
Replacing an earlier wooden bridge, the first Victoria Bridge was built in 1874, but was later damaged in the floods of 1893. The bridge was rebuilt in 1897 and remained in place until 1969, when it was replaced by the bridge which spans the river today.
